BIG thanks to our donors who make these smiles possible!

We invite our KEYS kids to be part of our FIRST official KEYS Program CD!!!!

You will work with Adrienne, our KEYS Music Therapist, for three music sessions, and write a song for our CD/playlist, which will be distributed and made available as the official KEYS playlist of 2020!

Adrienne will spend time getting to know you and teach you different ways to write songs. You will write your own song for it to be recorded and included in our CD/playlist!

 How cool is that!? 


It is so easy, can be with words or without, you can sing or someone can sing for you, the sky is the limit! It’s all about YOU and your own creativity!

And as always...it is FREE for our KEYS kiddos thanks to our amazing sponsors and donors! We only have 12 spots available, so be sure to sign up TODAY!

 KEYS Kids Network


During these difficult times, our KEYS Kids Network is more important than ever, and we are honored to add new music therapy videos, songs and content to share music and smiles with viewers of all ages and abilities....from pediatric cancer patients to special needs individuals to nursing home patients...these smiles are for YOU!

BIG thanks to the Tony Stewart Foundation for supporting our KEYS Kids Network each year! 


 Hope's Smile

Backyard Concerts


This program is currently on hold due to COVID-19.    We will get rockin' with this program again as soon as it is safe for our KEYS kiddos to participate!

There are many pediatric cancer patients who at some stage of their treatment are not able to leave home or travel to our Smile Experience due to their condition...so we bring Hope's Smile to their backyard! 

Created in memory of 2013 KEYS Kids Ambassador, Hope Inslee, we provide a cookout and backyard concert for KEYS kids, their families and close friends, in the comfort of their own backyard.

Our KEYS kids get to enjoy a break from cancer treatment to enjoy a day surrounded by love, music, smiles and memories that last a lifetime. 

Smile Experience

Family Respite Days!

Due to COVID-19 we are postponing our Smile Experience events to the Fall of 2020.

Our Smile Experience is a special cancer-free zone where we provide KEYS families a break from cancer treatment to enjoy a day together filled with over-the-top silliness, music, laughter and smiles! 

Our most popular Smile Experience is our day at the races where KEYS kids & their siblings drive our USAC .25 Midget cars on the race track. Each child enjoys a full celebration in Victory Lane, receives a trophy, signs autographs and gets interviewed by our track announcers. Live music, cookout, face painting and photo booth are just some of the fun activities throughout the day!


Our goal is to create precious memorable family moments (and BIG smiles) that help to sustain the entire family through the tough days a little bit easier.
